Realtime Insights


The ExoSense™ Insight interface allows functions to be inserted into an Asset's configuration to use one or more signals to generate a new piece of information in the form of a Signal (transform type) or a Status (rule type). They allow users to quickly add analytics, transforms, and rules to an asset's configuration - typically to generate data that is actionable and is an insight for how the asset is performing.

A Transform Insight in the Asset Configuration window

These Insight modules contain multiple functions and can accomplish such things as predicting the remaining life of a product, iterate on artificial intelligence models, generate status changes, and much more. This flexibility, coupled with the ability to rapidly distribute outcomes across both fleets and customer bases, makes Insights a powerful tool for users to implement their product expertise—without code.

The Insights interface supports all levels of analytics maturity, from descriptive to predictive to prescriptive. As your analytics sophistication increases, so does ExoSense™—start with simple threshold alerts, create a Remaining Useful Life model for your products, implement that model inside an Insight, and finally, send a stop command to an errant device.

What is an Insight?

Insight Modules

A module is a collection of functions. The module name is listed for end-users when they begin to add a rule or transform in the asset configuration window.

Typically an organization creates one module, but they can be useful for grouping and organization.


The Insight functions take one or more input signals as inlets, process this data, and output values to on or more outlets. Although simple in concept, this is powerful for providing streaming conversion of data, analytics, machine learning, and complex rule processing.

Functions are of type Transform or Rule.

Transforms: Their outputs are signals, which can be used in dashboards, as the inputs to rules, and to other transforms.

Rules: These functions output as a Status object. Statues are recorded in the Event Log and can be subscribed to for Email and SMS Notifications.
